Looking to form a new training group of 2:50-3:05 (1:20-1:28 half) marathon runners in the Twin Cities metro area and push the pace once a week.
No sign-up fee. No monthly fee. No uniforms to buy. No fancy website. No monthly newsletter. No cool logo. You will not receive a discount to local running stores or a training plan to follow.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re following Pfitz, Daniels, Lydiard, Galloway, etc. It doesn’t matter whether you call these runs steady state, progression, strong aerobic or marathon pace. It’s about meeting for a 10-15 mile run with some quicker miles thrown in.
It doesn't matter if you train with Northwest, LTF, MDRA, etc. or run for one of the local running stores. This is not meant to replace those other groups, but rather offer another alternative for getting in some stronger miles.
I won’t check and verify your PRs to see if you meet the “standards” or not. If you’re faster and want to join us for an easy day, that’s great. If you’re slower and want to be pushed, that’s great too.
Night of the week, time and place are all TBD, based on response. If you’re interested, or know someone that might be, please send me an email and we’ll see if we can make this work.
